    Re: video editing software

    It's a really common problem - try a google. I remember shortly after the G5 iMac came out there were huge amounts of returns due to crashing and components literally burning out - even scorching the mainboard or damaging other equipment.

    The screen produces a lot of heat- as does the HDD, you've got a dedicated GPU and powerful CPU packed into a small box. You must have good aircon if you've not had any problems chucking video around one!

    (I'm pretty sure) Macs don't defy physics...

    G5 Power Macs over heat.
    Intel Core Duo Macs do not.

    That's a really good price for that spec of PC. Whereabouts did you buy them from at that price if you that if you don't mind me asking?

    G5 - Core Duo and Core 2 Duo iMacs have overheating issues.

    Best performance and cramped conditions do not go hand in hand...

    Sorry to drag this out, but your link googles 'imac g5 overheating'. This does reveal a problem with the older iMacs. If you search for 'imac intel overheating' having a quick look, it seems there are few recorded problems with the intel chip overheating if any. The G5 imacs and INTEL imacs are completely different.

    Re: video editing software

    Lol, that's where I bought my current PC (barebones system) from just before xmas last year. I'll give them a shout and see if we can get a price. Is there anyone specific you'd recommend speaking to regarding bulk purchases as we're currently looking for specs/quotes for our annual PC refurbishment (100 machines)?

    You'll get assigned an account manager... have a chat with general sales first and they'll point you in the right direction. There is another post about Novatech.co.uk somewhere on EduGeek. Our AM is Michael Foy.

    You mention that you have 10 pcs with decent storage. Here is something to remember...with cloud video editing you won't have to worry about any storage space. Try Memplai.com its free and it has a great collaborative feature that allows you to invite others to your video project. Its editor is easy to use.
